Big Green Week

Big Green Week is the UK’s only city-wide annual festival of environmental ideas, arts, entertainment and culture. The festival offers a fun, thought-provoking opportunity to celebrate smart urban living, working towards the creation of a happy healthy city.

The festival will host over 200 events, offering two weekends of free family entertainment, talks, art, workshops, debates, music and discussion.

Established over the past 4 years, the Week's main showcase events are the FareFashion show, Big Green Market, Festival of Nature and Sky Bike Ride. These events attract over 50,000 visitors altogether.

Big Green Week also curates a fringe festival programme through a network of affiliated organisations and charities. Many of these fringe events are fun, educational experiences for families and their communities.

To celebrate Bristol winning the European Green Capital Award, the festival will host the European Commission conference to announce the winner of the 2017 award.
